I just sent payment on a new toy. I am mostly into preban Chinese AK's, and have no real experience with E. Euro AK type weapons. It is an excellent original condition all matching 1978 Romanian RPK kit built on an NDS receiver w/ matching serial. The receiver needs a finish, and a couple rivets aren't the prettiest, but it is headspace and test fired and allegedly runs great.

Included with the rifle are 4 used 40 round mags, original Romy sling and an Iraqi bring back mag pouch. Got it all for $600 shipped. I am pretty sure it was a good buy, just wondering what your thoughts are? Anything I should look out for with the Romy RPK kits?

The couple pics the seller sent show that the original finish on the kit is really excellent, nice park with very little wear, bore was described as like new.

So what do ya think, good snag? I should have it be weeks end. TIA for any comments or advice!!

Good price, It all depends upon who built it.
Romainian military parts are good stuff, and Nodak Spud (Dan Coonan) makes the best receivers out there.
There were come comericial builds out there that used US made barrels that were about as accurate as carpet bombing.

You can put a cold blue on that receiver that cant be told from a factory finish if you do it right.
It will last just as log as a factory finish also.
